    West Salish pond

    that pond is dead with trout right now atm. Check the trout stocking schedules and plan to hit the water after the stocking.

    Squirrel hunting

    I'm talking about big western gray squirrel hunting not the city squirrels. Anyone hunt for these critters when september rolls around? They're tasty and fun to hunt but also veryy challenging. The numbers have declined over the years and it is very lucky to see at least 5 a day. If you've never...

    Sea lions and crabs

    The family and I arrived at the fishing pier behind rogue brewery saturday at about 11 am. We quickly set up our rings with shad and waited a solid ten minutes. After pulling in the traps our bait was gone. This happened 2-3 rounds of waiting. I was puzzled.. I did however see a few sea lions...

    blue lake (next to fairfield lake in north gresham area)

    i see you are from hillsboro.. Hit hagg instead. Blue lake isn't really worth the drive. you'll catch tons of stunted sun fish, maybe bass, and maybe carp.

    Salish Ponds, now fishing.

    Try this:1/4 ounce sliding sinker, bead, swivel, leader, size 8 hook and worm/powerbait/salmon eggs or whatever. Cast out and slowly retrieve it. It's deadly. I caught 6 in less than an hour yesterday doing this. Don't know why some ppl would plunk when the pond is sooo deep and the fish are up...

    Help? advice? tips?

    Soooo, dad wants to go carping soon. I live out in the parkrose neighborhood in Ne Portland. Would like to know some specific areas where I could catch carp within 30 mins thanks and also bait and such. My best bet right now would be blue lake in my thinking

    Benson Lake - where are the fish?

    one time during the summer on the rail road side we were trout fishing and under an over hanging tree there were a bunch of fishes that looked like catfish circling under the shade.. tried worms, corn and stuff but couldnt hook any. My cousin swears hes seen a rainbow fish in there.. Don't know...

    OK so I have seen this way too many times and it annoys me lol. It annoys me when a long time angler that stands about 6 ft tall sets the hook like he or she has no energy. Cmonn my little brothers can wham it harder than that.. Well its not really the way how they set hook that annoys me, its...
